Small Town Romance Sizzles @Nancy_Corrigan #RLFblog #Romance

A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there's a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won't find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone's norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she's the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she's married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.

Sander's Valley, 1
Young lovers, Kyle and Ronnie, had the world ahead of them at seventeen. Stubbornness, misunderstanding and a mother's influence forced them to forge their own paths. A decade later, neither can find love.
Ronnie always thought it was easier to move on than deal with the pain and hurt of past mistakes. She made plenty of them, but so did Kyle and her parents. Kyle knows the moment he touches Ronnie that he still loves her. He won't repeat the past and let her leave him a second time.
It takes a tragedy and a secret to reunite them, but their passion returns in a rush along with regret and guilt. To have love, they'll have to overcome their issues—before her mother's sin takes Ronnie away, once and for all.

Sander's Valley, 2
Wyn Sander is surprised when his brother Kyle asks him to be best man at his wedding. Wyn's even more shocked to learn the woman who later walks into his garage is Ronnie's half-sister, Iona. He's instantly attracted to her. She's sophisticated, beautiful, and confident. At least she is until Wyn stands up. She flinches and a look of terror passes over her face. It bothers him to see. Luckily, desire replaces it, but it doesn't stop Wyn's curiosity. For the first time in his life, he wants to find out what made Iona fearful and fix it.
Iona can't believe her luck. The man she lusts after is her new sister's soon to be brother-in-law. The kiss they share shatters her, but her attempt to stop any involvement with him ends up with her agreeing to three dates. She decides Wyn is unlike any man she's ever known, and it's unfortunate she can't enjoy him. She isn't in the market for a boyfriend. All she wants is sex. The only problem is—she doesn't think Wyn sees things her way.

Lauren Linwood's Ballad Beauty @LaurenLinwood #cowboys #RLFblog

Ballad Beauty 
Romance Lives Forever welcomes Lauren Linwood, historical western romance author.

About the Author

Lauren Linwood became a teacher who wrote on the side to maintain her sanity in a sea of teenage hormones. Her historical romances use history as a backdrop to place her characters in extraordinary circumstances, where their intense desire for one another grows into the treasured gift of love. Her romantic suspense novels feature strong heroes and heroines who unite to defeat a clever antagonist and discover a deep, abiding love during their journey.
A native Texan, Lauren lives in a Dallas suburb with her family. An avid reader, moviegoer, and sports fan, she manages stress by alternating yoga with long walks. She plans to start a support group for House Hunters addicts—as soon as she finishes her next piece of dark chocolate.

Interview with Lauren Linwood

Why did you write this book?
I'd written five previous historical romances, but I'd never mined the gold in my native state of Texas! I decided it was time to feature a hero who lived here, and the first thing that came to mind was a Texas Ranger. They helped tamed Texas from the wild land that it was. My twist? My hero is the son of an infamous outlaw and chose to become a lawman because of what he'd seen in his childhood. He knows exactly what his daddy is, but the heroine he falls for has no idea that her father is also an outlaw—and partner-in-crime to the hero's daddy!
What is your favorite genre to read?
Since I was a history teacher for many years, I enjoy authors who combine pieces of history within thrillers. Steve Berry, David Baldacci, and Brad Meltzer are some of the best at this.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Hands down, it's Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird. He's a hero in every sense of the word, and I admire his moral core and what a great father he is to his two children.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I'm pleased to announce that I've dipped my toe into the romantic suspense pond after releasing six historicals. Leave Yesterday Behind will be released in June. I have another medieval historical, A Knight for Kallen, coming out in the fall, and early in 2016 my second romantic suspense, Illusions of Death, will appear. I've just finished another western which I'm letting ferment a bit before I send it off to my editor, and I'm 25 chapters into another romantic suspense that's set in Dallas.
Please tell us about your latest book.
After ten years apart, Boston schoolmarm Jenny McShanahan receives a letter from her beloved father that instructs her to join him in Texas. She has no idea that he's become Famous Sam McShan, the Robin Hood of the West. She arrives to find Sam already gone, but he left instructions for Jenny to hire a guide and rendezvous with him in Nevada.
Texas Ranger Noah Daniel Webster knows Sam personally because his father, Pistol Pete Webber, was Sam's longtime partner in crime. When Pete is killed during their last big score, Noah requests the assignment to bring Sam to justice. Going undercover, he volunteers to act as Jenny's escort across the dangerous prairie, using her to track her outlaw father's location.
As they journey through rough country, love blossoms—but Noah knows the second he arrests Sam, his betrayal will kill Jenny's love for him. Should the lawman do his duty as a Ranger, or should he let love rule? The choice Noah makes will change their lives forever.

Barbara White Daille Cowboy's Little Surprise @BarbaraWDaille #RLFblog #cowboys

The Cowboy's Little Surprise 
Barbara White Daille author of The Cowboy's Little Surprise answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Barbara White Daille lives with her husband in the sunny U.S. Southwest, where they don’t mind the lizards in their front yard but could do without the scorpions in the bathroom.
A writer from the age of nine and a novelist since eighth grade, Barbara is now an award-winning author with a number of novels to her credit.
The first book in The Hitching Post Hotel series, The Cowboy’s Little Surprise, debuts in April 2015, followed by A Rancher of Her Own in July and an as-yet-untitled book in December.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Romance, romantic suspense, mystery. Sometimes YA. Whatever it is, I like something with a romantic relationship in it.
What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Pot roast with carrots, potatoes, onions, and brown gravy, with plenty of everything for leftovers. Yum!
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Really, Alaskan King crab legs, but since they're pricey, I only do that if we're celebrating something special. On a regular night out, anything Italian—lasagna, baked ziti, stuffed shells. A salad on the side. A full bread basket with warm olive oil and herbs. My only regret is most Italian restaurants don't serve brownies or chocolate cake!
Describe the perfect vacation.
A condo near a beach, where we could take long walks at night, view the stars and listen to the surf. Nearby, there would have to be good restaurants, an ice cream parlor, and a shop that sold decadent chocolate desserts. And of course, I'd have to have access to many quiet, comfortable spots where I could curl up with a book.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My favorite toy was a book. I don't mean to "cheat," but I wasn't into much of anything else. I spent all my free time reading—and wish I could still do that now. A book was always at the top of my list when anyone asked what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas, and I loved loved LOVED getting the next Bobbsey Twins or Nancy Drew or Trixie Belden in the series.

At the moment it's Jim Heron from J.R. Ward's Fallen Angel series. He's trying to save the world one soul at a time in a deadly game against his arch enemy Devina. If you haven't tried them yet, you should. Awesome series.
What's your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?
That's easy, #1lineWed @KissOfDeath There's a different topic each Wednesday where you're welcome to post a line from a WIP. No buy links.
Describe the perfect vacation.
I'm living it. We recently moved to Victoria, Vancouver Island, Canada. It's amazing. Ocean, mountains, ancient Cedars, friendly people, and a relaxed lifestyle, it doesn't get much better.

I love romance of any kind. My favorites are military style romantic suspense.

What's your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?
Because I find the 1st Amendment very important, I watch #notchilled
Describe the perfect vacation.
I get to take the perfect vacation every year. The husband and I rent a small cabin and spend an entire week on a lake. There's no cell phone reception, no television, no laptop. It's just us having a ton of fun and relaxing as we escape the insanity of day-to-day life. We may or may not be competitive about the actual fishing part.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Outside. I know, that's not very exciting but I enjoyed playing outdoors using my imagination. I grew up on a family farm and played with my cousin daily. I was usually Spiderman and he was a random bad guy. I don't know how I managed not to get impaled by rusty metal while "scaling" barrels and anything else I could find.
What are your hobbies?
Fishing remains my most favorite hobby. It has been an excellent skill to teach my daughter and try to teach my son ( who doesn't care how to tie a proper fisherman's knot.) I also really enjoy gardening. Next to making babies, it's the best way to create life.
If the heroine of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for her?

Character Interview: Arthur from Dawnflight @KimHeadlee #RLFblog #historical

Dawnflight 
The character interview allows a hero or heroine to tell readers about himself or herself. Today's interview is with Arturus Aurelius Vetarus -- better known to us as King Arthur.

Interview with Arthur

Tell us about yourself, please.
I am Arturus Aurelius Vetarus, Dux Britanniarum—that is to say, my name is Arthur son of Uther, and I command the army that defends the northern Brytoni territory of the Isle of Brydein from Caledonian, Saxon, Scotti, and Angli threats. I am Roman by my father, and descended from the Aurelii emperors: Antoninus Pius, Hadrian, and Marcus Aurelius. My mother is Ygraine, chieftainess of Clan Cwrnwyll of Brydein—though the circumstance of my birth prevents me from becoming chieftain after her.
Authors call what you want but cannot have "the conflict" -- what is yours?
When I followed my late father to become Dux Britanniarum, what I had wanted was to be granted an exception for my illegitimacy by the elders of Clan Cwyrnwyll so that I could be designated my mother's heir. But that desire became as nothing the day I met Gyanhumara, Chieftainess of Clan Argyll of Caledonia. I knew she was the woman who would share my vision for a united Brydein and help me bring it to pass. But she was betrothed—by a stipulation of my own treaty with her people—to Urien, my greatest political rival, a man who will stop at nothing, including war, to achieve what he wants.
I cannot bring such a calamity upon those I have sworn to protect.
Perhaps you might be wondering why I do not simply void the betrothal clause. I could—for any man of aristocratic status. As a bastard, I do not qualify under the treaty terms. The day I had drafted that accursed document, I had never thought that in half a year I would be meeting the woman I crave more than breath itself.
What can you not do (but need to do) during this story?
Some of my advisers might argue that I should kill Urien and be done with the matter. The fact is that Urien's father and mine were great friends and allies, and Chieftain Dumarec has graciously extended that support to me. Dumarec's men form the backbone of the legion I command, and killing Urien would kill that alliance.
But if there is another way to make Urien pay for his disrespectful—and sometimes hurtful—treatment of Gyanhumara, I swear by all that is holy that I shall find it.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Gyanhumara is a chieftainess of the Caledonian people by birth, and a warrior and leader of warriors by training. Her clan, Argyll, led the southernmost Caledonian clans to attack the Brytoni settlement at Abar-Gleann, though Gyanhumara herself did not fight in that battle. If she had, I would have worded that damned betrothal clause far differently, I assure you.
I do not love her because she is gorgeous, or wealthy, or intelligent, or amusing, or amazing, or skilled with a sword, or because a union with her will help to strengthen the fragile peace between our peoples. Indeed Gyanhumara is all of those things, and more. But take away all those attributes, and she would still be the woman for whom my heart thrums its most joyous song.
What would that person say about you?
Hah! Probably that I am secretive, private, and unreadable—because I must strive to keep my feelings for her buried. I would shout my love for her from the very gates of heaven itself, but not one moment before I determine how I can nullify her betrothal to Urien without inviting disaster.
What special skills do you rely on?
Uther and his best general, my cousin Merlin, taught me strategic and tactical thinking, as well as the ability to recognize good counsel and abilities within others. I credit these skills as the reason I was able to defeat Gyanhumara's people in my first battle as Dux Britanniarum. No doubt they attacked because I was untried as a leader of men, and although I despised the loss of life on both sides of that conflict, it pleased me to prove the Caledonians wrong. Yet it pleased me even more to turn former enemies into valuable allies.
My foster brother Cai would likely name as a "special skill" my ability to bring out the best in men with but a word, a nod, sometimes no more than a brief touch. I cannot explain why this is so, but I have observed the results myself and know that Cai is right. And I am grateful for this ability of mine, for I need all my soldiers to function at their very best in order to help me keep Brydein safe.

About the Author

Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-twentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while yet.
Kim is a Seattle native and a direct descendent of twentieth-century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim's novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband's ancestor, the seventh-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.
For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon's Dove Chronicles, and other novels under her new imprint, Pendragon Cove Press.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
I have written an "open letter" guest post as Arthur, but this is the first time he has ever been called upon to conduct an interview.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
Oh yes! In fact the first sequel, Morning's Journey, is already on sale. I have a total of eight books planned for The Dragon's Dove Chronicles, though Arthur will be just a "gleam in the eye" in one of them.
Why should readers who haven't picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
Oh, where to begin? How about with terrific writing and an exciting plot? Furthermore, in all of Arthurian literature, Dawnflight features the only Guinevere character (Gyanhumara, or Gyan as she prefers to be called by family and close friends) that a reader can truly like, for a change. Dawnflight can be read as pure escapism, but it also contains layers of meaning for those readers who like to delve deeper. And this edition features a Tolkien-esque invention of languages to further enrich the world inhabited by Gyan and Arthur and their families, friends, allies, and enemies.
Is there anything you'd like to say to your readers?
Thank you so very much for all your clicks and buys and reviews and follows and shares and fan mail and every other type of support I haven't mentioned!

Among the misty lochs and glens of ancient Scotland, duty wages war against love on the battlefield of opposing cultures and agendas. When Gyanhumara and Arthur meet, they recognize each other as soul mates. Arthur's treaty has preserved Gyan's ancient right to marry any man, providing he is a nobleman—but Arthur himself does not qualify. And the man to which she is betrothed, the ambitious Urien, shall not be so easily denied by his greatest political rival. If Gyan and Arthur cannot prevent Urien from plunging the Caledonians and Brytons back into war, their love will be doomed to remain unfulfilled forever.
But there is an even greater threat looming. The Laird of the Scots wants their land and will kill all who stand in his way. Gyan, Arthur, and Urien must unite to defeat this merciless enemy who threatens everyone they hold dear.
